lost in the market

Hey guys...
Its me again.
Nowdays I am missing Kullu Manali for some Known and unknown reasons. I will tell you a real thing from my explorations there.Funny, yet good.I was lost in the year 2007 when Ihad gone to manali and had got "lost" or wandered away in the manali market.
But having lost or wandered away from my other friends.. nor I was confused nor I was frantic nor nervous. I was simply happy. Iwas enjoying the market. you know why? let me tell you in brief.

It was our third day at the camp and we were led to the hadimba temple premises of the kulu manali.
Before entering in, we were told by our guides or volunteers to come at 12:20 sharp at the same place.It was around 11 am at that time.
We were group of around 60 people. In i went to explore with my friend. there was a crowd in the temple so we decided to move around for some time. during the moving around, my friend got separated from me. after the visit to the temple.. I got to know that there was a small market down the lane.I started for there and got lost in the different shops offering different wodden things and other clothes. so engrossed was i in the shops and wandering around that I did not know what the time was. It was only when i happened to look in one of the shop's clock  selling wooden furniture that i got to know the time. It was 12:45 pm.

SHIT! I said to myself. i am done for. i quicky started running down when i was faced by my two volunteers coming to search me. they saw me and told me," man... you are done had our hearts in our mouths. Now pay after going down and talk with the main guy. what could i do? i simply said sorry and started to go down, but they stopped me and asked me to go by different direction. we went down by different direction from the hills and among the small lane of houses of the locals.
wow! I was so glad that i had made a mistake. I could literally see the clouds coming down and such was the atmospthere that there were no words to describe.  It was raining also.I snapped some pics of the atmosphere  when we were returning down.. And soon we were in the clouds for 4 seconds. wow.Want to see some of them? they are below.


Soon , we reached to the main market area of manali called nehru chowk and was soon led to the main guide or volunteer. after giving me some few firings to go back to camp and after me saying sorry some 10 times, he relented. and again, I was in midst of my freinds.
Now comes the interesting part. While I was lost or say wanderings, all had gathered down at appointed time and all were asked to see if any of their freinds were missing . they found 1 missing and wondered who was it. My tent mate realised it was me , and shouted, " JHALA. sir, jhala is not there. all started to wonder if I was lost or i was kidnapped. but as soon as they saw me.. all we did was laugh and fun.. The market as such is small but it is filled with different shops selling different things. You can see more foreigners then Indians there.
I recommend everyone once to go to Kulu Manali once in a lifetime. You will not reget it guys.

absent minded professor?

hey guys
how are you? i come to you this time not with any sermon , not with any suggestion , not with any debate.. I come to you this time with a funny incident of my college which happened with me today .

i thought it was too much of long posts and discussions so let me just put up this funny thing...

I have recently started studying for a DCA course in computer. a student of my " caliber" studying something of computer and that too subject of C programming. wow!  But miracles do happen sometimes.
ya, so we gave our first internal exams around 2 months back and the results were just declared last week..Well what to say of our great college. At the time of marks declaration i was not there due to some reason.. Although i am a regular there and all know me including the teaching staff, I was not present during marks giving. I am among the few rare flock who attend his lectures "Regularly".  If you look up at him, you are sure to be reminded of an adult Rabbit. So I expectedly went up today on prior appointment  to the C programming teacher and asked him my marks.

That guy gave me a blank expression giving an impression that i was an alien from outer world. I had to give my introduction 2 times, after that he gave me another blank expression like i was disturbing his afternoon nap. He, fortunately found my paper among his heap of files and paper quickly  and without looking up , hopelessly gave it to me.

Needless to say that the marks on the paper were not much looking after and looking at all of my friends and classmate's paper , comparatively i would say that i had secured marks good enough to laugh about . i had got a single digit mark[s] along with the class scholar.ha ha!

after coming out, i called out my friends who had not got their marks like me and they quickly went in. Looks like he was so frustrated on us or on his day goings that within 5 mins, I saw him go out of college hurriedly.

But mind you, he is a genius in his subject and well read.

ok so here completes my funny incident of the day and i should say a short one.
WOW! I did this short?  I cant believe my eyes man.

see ya.. enjoying another miracle right now.
